Very true!

The Wall Street Journal reports the CEO of PC chipmaker Intel Paul Otellini “had a startling confession:

He spends an hour a weekend removing spyware from his daughter'’s computer. And when further pressed about whether a mainstream computer user in search of immediate safety from security woes ought to buy Apple Computer Inc.'’s Macintosh instead of a Wintel PC, he said, "‘If you want to fix it tomorrow, maybe you should buy something else.’"

When it comes to peace of mind, Apple Mac is an alternative you might want to consider. I was a mac user since April untill my G4 iMac harddrive failed and I got to switch "camp" to Window platform. As to why I go back to Window over a Mac this time round, that another story...

My weekly routine now include scanning for spyware, running virus scan on my IBM Thinkpad notebook...something I do not even have to do when I was using my Mac.

That peace of mind is something I sorely missed.

Lenovo Singapore Website

Chinese-based Lenovo formally completed its purchase of IBM’s PC division this past weekend, instantly becoming the world’s third-largest PC manufacturer after Dell and HP. It’s sort of business as usual over there—much of the old IBM management team is now running the show at Lenovo now, and they’ve already launched a US version of their website highlighting their newly acquired ThinkPad and ThinkCentre PC lines (still with IBM logos on ‘em)—but it’ll probably be a few more weeks or months until we see the very first models that are wholly a product of the newly merged company.

First look on MS Window Longhorn

Take a first look of the next Window Operating System at Cnet Asia.

My first thought of the User Interface (UI) look and feel appears to bear some resemblance to Apple Macintosh OS X 10.3 Panther released 2 years ago...
